, paul ryan. unfortunately, we'll probably hear more of that this week. we do have a great surrogate team and they're on the ground in their respective cities or states. they move around. i certainly move around. you talk about deval patrick, i'm in chicago, rahm emanuel, stephanie rawlings-blake in baltimore, kasim reed, the list goes on and on. we have the best candidate in president obama and vice president biden. we have the greatest surrogate team, and they're on the ground in those places where there are real people with real issues and real problems, and they're talking about the things that the president talks about, jobs and the economy, health care, education, energy, and tax reform. those are the president's themes. he's never walked away from any of those issues, and it's easier, i think quite frankly, for mitt romney to have multiple positions on the same issue because he has no plans. he has no ideas. he has no proposals. he's not ready for prime time. >> okay. we've got a month to go. please spread the word among the surrogates you mentioned we are welcoming them here on "h
traveling body has come up with worse. paul ryan is saying 70% of the country is free loaders. only 30% want to be but 70% are. why are they declaring war on the great bulk of the american people? i want to go to hugh ward with this. i've never seen where you slice -- in this case, ryan has 30% and -- >> chris, it's because they are repeating paul ryan is still repeating the kinds of lines and red meat rhetoric that he used for the conservative base when he was running for vice president, when he was running to get mitt romney's attention. that is not his audience now. his audience has shifted totally to the idealogs in the base and the people he grew up in janesville, wisconsin. that's who he should be talking about. >> we have videotape today. this is what is going on, steve. we're going back and digging up stuff. the tape always looks brand new and how he has to -- this is paul ryan on fox this sunday saying he doesn't have time to go over how he's going to find all of this tax money to make up for these cuts. here he is. >> how much would it cost? >> it's ref neutral. it doesn't cost --
. >>> i think he's a conservative. six months after mitt romney, he chose the more conservative paul ryan as his running mate. fast forward from wednesday. we heard from a very different mitt. here is some that would have earned him jeers from a republican audience. >> regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. >> what we did in massachusetts is a model for the nation, state by state. >> so which mitt romney will voters be choosing if they give him the vote, the severely conservative guy or the regulation is essential, barely mentioned paul ryan, mitt romney. i actually think the answer is nothing else mitt romney said on wednesday. >> something this big, this important has to be done on a bipartisan basis and we have to have a president who can reach across the aisle and fashion important legislation with the input from both parties. i'm going to work together with congress to say okay, what are the various ways we could bring down deductions. we have to work on a collaborative basis. not because we're going to compromise our principle, but b
. and on top of that, he didn't mention his name, but paul ryan would be his vice president. paul ryan is the one, i mean mitt romney says he has a 59 hfr point plan, but paul ryan actually has a budget and it's a budget that goes far aand away and is very specific in ways that romney has not been. if he's really this pragmatic guy, then he's going to be forced to do things that naturally he wouldn't want to do. >>> i have read that much. it's way more than 59 points. maggie, in wednesday's debate, one thing i think has been a little bit conflated here, did you see mitt romney actually shifting positions or emphasizing different elements of his positions? because when i watched and what i saw was a different approach to governance on display and a very different set of policies he was underscoring but not actually going off any of the policies he had espoused up to that night. >> i think you're right. what's been different was tone more than substance, style more than substance. i also think it's not a surprise that that's what he did at a debate that is not strictly for the republican
the board. it's revenue neutral. we can't tell you how it's revenue neutral, because as paul ryan said, it will take too long. >> will obama go after him, like kennedy did in '94? he'll say, mr. governor, that's what people want. >> we can't talk about the president's strategy. he has to stay cool. if jim lehrer doesn't do it, if the moderator doesn't do, it then the president may have to step in, depending on how romney performs. but if romney doesn't really make the case strongly, the president doesn't necessarily have to jump on him. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer the question. >> let lehrer try it. >> but i think the obama campaign is leery of being -- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best defense? >> good offense. >> i would recommend the president. why did the cavalry leave the fort to fight the indians? do you know why? >> why. >> they're cavalry. thank you. >>> coming up, we have a new scoreboard. not like in the old days but spinners will be there. let's watch the power of the tweeter,
what direction to go. we know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house have passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. we just need a president to sign this stuff. and pick a republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the united states. >> you know, that's not an unfair shot. he basically believes he has those pledges in his pocket. he knows he can control fiscal policy in the congress with or without the new president. if there's a new president. he's got romney's arms tied in the same way that the religious right has his arms tied on abortion rights, same-sex, the the way the neo cons have his arms tied in terms of foreign policy. >> one question either the moderate or obama should ask, name one issue in which you plan to buck your party, one issue in which you plan to stand up to house republicans, one issue in which you don't plan to govern as a severe conservative as you described your record in massachusetts before you were des
mathematical sense? yesterday paul ryan was grilled about it on, of all places, fox news. let's watch. >> how much would it cost? >> it's revenue neutral.t talkit to -- >> the cut in tax rates will lower all americans' tax rates by 20%. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all the math. >> this is not the first time romney was challenged, or ryan, on the vagueness of the proposal. back in 1994 romney talked about a plan to tackle health care up in massachusetts. actually nationwide. but never explained what the cost would be, the cost of the program. his opponent in the race back then was ted kennedy memorably challenging him on that debate. let's watch how it's done. here is where you challenge a guy to come clean, especially when he can't do it. let's watch. >> they ought to have an opportunity to know. what is the cost of your program? >> i don't have a cost of my program. >> you don't have a cost. >> i'm sorry, i don't h
spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and paul ryan are actually running. that's quite a statement. and a new york magazine jonathan challenged romney over his economic plan that seems to rely on some magical numbers and thinking, quote, so romney is a candidate of a 20% cut in tax rates, a new plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions and higher defense spending and he will accomplish it all by eliminating federal funding for pbs. the question is can obama and his team win the post debate debate by highlighting some of this nonsense and romney's fuzzy language? willy brown is the former mayor of san francisco, former speaker of the house out there. joan walsh is editor at large or salon and the author of "what's the mat we are white people." i want to get to these points. can you win on the fact having lost perhaps on performance value? >> it's very, very difficult to get people in the world observing politicians to overcome to the substance. they always go for style. they always are influenced by performances, and i believe mr. obama took a licking last night.
